You can whip this up in an afternoon! I promise!
Here's what you need:
1 charm pack (5" squares)
Iron on adhesive – I used Heat and Bond lite! I also love Steam-a-Seam lite
rick rack in a coordinating color
optional: computer/printer/word processing software & a light table
also optional: one sheep
That's it…Let's do this!!
Using a computer and software with your desired font, print out your saying. Using the iron on adhesive sheets and a light table, trace the letters BACKWARDS!! (this is important…otherwise you will be ironing on your letters the wrong way!! eek!!)
Cut out around each letter leaving a little space around the letters.
Cut your letters out!! yipeeeee! they look so cool! Now place them on the FRONT side of your LIGHT fabric squares.
***hint: if you are going to use this banner over and over again, you will probably want to zigzag around each letter to solidify it!***
***FUN FACT: I actually made this while my house was in an uproar! Since the first part didn't require my sewing machine which was close by(but space was a bit unavailable), I could do all of this in my kitchen! yay!!***
Pin the rick rack exactly where you want it on the tops of each square making sure your letters are all the right way and everything is spelled correctly!! (I checked 4 times!! LOL!!)
Sew that rick rack on!!
and this is what you get!!!
all in an afternoon! LOVE!!!
Let me know if you make something with this little easy peasy tutorial!! yay!! I'm thinking up many Christmas phrases that I LOVE!!!
happy weekend!! remember, hope abounds in thankfulness!
